Can your book stand up to the competition? Market your book in Award Winning Competitions for Indy Writers!

So in searching the net for different ideas on marketing my new book BEHIND CLOSED DOORS by K.F. Johnson, I discovered that entering your book into competitions is said to be a great one.

Competition you say? Yes. You can enter your book for consideration in various award driven competitions; most of which have awards and/or cash prizes upwards of $1,000. 

What's the catch? You do have to pay an entry fee for consideration (usually between $75-$100).

Being able to claim you're an "award winning" author, or site your book as winning or placing in any contest is an accolade that can't hurt your marketing though right?

Most of the competitions are starting their search for 2013 year awards now, so if you have $75-$100 to spare to enter a book writing competition for your genre, here are some Indy friendly competitions:

The Next Generation Indie Book Awards: Enter the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Awards® now to take advantage of this exciting opportunity to have your book considered for cash prizes, awards, exposure, possible representation by a leading literary agent, and recognition as one of the top independently published books of the year!

The 2013 Independent Publisher Book Awards: The “IPPY” Awards were conceived as a broad-based, unaffiliated awards program open to all members of the independent publishing industry, and are open to authors and publishers worldwide who produce books written in English and intended for the North American market.

Good Luck!
